- First Responses in Solid Tumours Reported.

Aurora inhibitors play a key role in cell duplication and are implicated in both the onset and progression of numerous types of tumour. A lecture focusing on Aurora kinase inhibitors will be presented today by Dr. Bernard Laffranchi during the 20th EORTC-NCI-AACR Symposium "Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics" organised from 21st to 24th October 2008 in Geneva.

Moreover, emphasises Dr. Colotta, the Aurora inhibitors discovered at Nerviano were the first to be evaluated in patients and to undergo clinical development.

"This symposium will be organised in a particularly pragmatic fashion and provides a wide-ranging overview of all data collected with regard to future treatment of patients," underlines Dr. Colotta.

The product at the most advanced stage of development is PHA 739358, a se
